Does anyone from NJ have the accurate information regarding the current
mandate for vascular lab accreditation in NJ? Originally, we learned that
they were under XACT medicare requiring RVT, RVS or ICAVL by 1/1999. In
working with a lab from NJ they recently learned that they are now under
BC/BS that deals with the medicare reimbursement and no one seems to know
anything about accreditation requirements. They have called the ARDMS, ICAVL
and SVT offices and got the original message of requriment by 1/99, but when
they call the NJ and HCFA offices no one seems to have the same
answer.....any advice?? Kathy Palmieri, RVT
